It's a personal preference. I like closer ratio and shorter gears with FI.

However the current trend of late is to say it's not a good match because everyone else is saying it. lol

the only thing you are losing with 3.9 and FI is top end speed (160mph+) and less gearing to load the turbo up faster.

People want to say it's "bad" because they have no traction. But it has nothing to do with the FD, and everything to do with not having the proper lsd or tires. Or the ability to threshold accelerate.

So I have a wider gear selection when I track the vehicle. And because I like shorter gears. 4th and 5th will be more useable to me. As well as 2nd on tighter courses.

Also because I spend little time in 1st gear. I'd rather shift and have a wider selection of gearing. And I don't need to go faster than 165mph anyway.

Again, I believe it's personal preference. I believe the gearing is a bit too wide. Modifying the final drive is easier than me putting a closer ratio 6 spd in the car.

Just my opinion, as always. :cheers:
